Systematic athletic training was an important of the classical educational tradition because athletics offered opportunities for moral and ethical training. The relationship between a strong mind and a strong body was also understood, something that modern studies have affirmed. Classical Prep continues this tradition and is committed to giving its scholars the many opportunities that athletics provide for leadership, character development, and physical conditioning, to fulfill its mission and vision of creating moral and intellectual leaders.
After-school sports are offered in the context that they promote character-training lessons, leadership opportunities, and a lifelong habit of health.
Grammar School Athletics
Classical Prep provides elementary students the opportunity to participate in sports through after-school activities. These activities promote physical fitness as well as offer preparation for competitive middle/high school athletics.
In addition, the school builds physical activity purposely into the school day, requiring PE two days a week for grades K-5th and sufficient recess breaks for younger students.
